Brazilian Zouk is a partner dance that can create an amazing feeling through the use of momentum to lead and follow. Developing momentum happens first in our own bodies though before we are able to convey it to or from our partners.
In this new course with Gui Prada, we will study the principles behind creating and enjoying momentum in our own bodies through different drills and exercises. We will use footwork, body movements and a combination of these two elements to create momentum and fluidity. Momentum can create fluidity because it takes away the effort of execution. These are two of the keys to unlock the magic of this dance, and we are excited to share this material with you.
This is a solo course for followers and leaders who want to develop a different set of skills around the idea of momentum and how that can make the execution of some movements more fluid.
One of the things we strive for here at District Zouk is to help our students develop a dance that is effortless and fluid. Developing your own momentum is a big step in this direction and will help you improve your leading and following greatly by also developing your sensitivity to different dynamics, speeds and the changes that occur when we change directions or create a torsion for example.
This learning group will provide you with regular times to learn, additional opportunities to practice, and a community of dance geeks to share videos with and get feedback.
This is also a way you can support our instructors, who teach dance as their full-time occupation, and they can support you during this time.
To take better advantage of this course, students should have experience with Brazilian Zouk, in particular the basic fundamentals.
